Western Status Update


Via Western Region Commodore Daniel Hearn:

DN Sailors:
Lake Pepin is being sailed today as a possible venue for the Western Region Championships to take place this weekend, Jan. 5-6. I will have a full ice report with video and pictures by late afternoon. At this point, no other good possibilities have been identified, though anything else served up will still be considered. Send any other reports ASAP. Recent snow events have taken out, for now, the lakes that were previously frozen. Many lakes in the southern portion of our region remain open, however, so more possibilities with the next cold weather/calm winds stretch. I hope to make a final call by end of day today. Stay tuned, and think ice!

2018 Central Region Championship Called ON for Dec 29-30 @ Houghton Lake


Via Central Region Commodore Rob Holman:

Launch Location: DNR site on West side of lake off Old US Highway 27 next to the Lakeside resort.

Please be aware of the following: The ice has not been sailed. It has been walked by two ranked sailors due to no wind at time. It has been rated a 7 and the lake was 7 to 7.5 inches thick, before the current rain event that is going through the area.
